so again today. thank you, madam speaker. steve: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. flores, for five minutes. mr. flores: madam speaker, i rise today to honor the 75th anniversary of the city of college station texas. college station has been and is the home to tens of thousands of texas families, students, businesses, and residents throughout the years. and i'm proud to offer my congratulations on this milestone. college station was an unincorporated community for over 60 years before officially being incorporated as a city on october 19, 1938. in 1869 the houston and texas central railway was built through the area and in 1871 college station was chosen as the location for what would eventually become one of the largest public universities in the nation, texas a&m university. the city got its name because the a&m campus was the focal point of community development at the time. in 1877 the area was designated college station, texas, by the postal service, deriving its name from the train station located to the west of the campus. since

-owned entity, and sadly, it has struggled since. part of the problem, steve, is that congress does not look at transportation as a single entity. it looks at it in a stove pipe fashion in that aviation, amtrak, highways, are dealt with separate bills in separate budgets. the traveler does not say i am exclusively a railroad traveler. a traveler on any day might use highways, aviation, railroads, and what would certainly help america's transportation situation today would be to fund all of the modes to a multimodal, single transportation budget, which is not being done. what we are doing today is lobbyists from each of the modes are coming to capitol hill and fighting for their share of the pie. because amtrak is relatively poor, does not have a political action committee, it does not fare as well as the other modes do on the hill. host: i want to come back to that in a moment, but let's look at amtrak by the numbers. on any given day it operates 300 passenger trains daily. it has more than 21,000 miles of roots. it connects more than 500 destinations in 46 states, washington, d.c., and thre

which to fund discretionary spending than do upper income households. i will now turn it over to steve to tell us more about our other findings. you, i'm executive director of the consumer federation of america. our survey data contains both good news and bad news. there hasews is that been the continued increase in the percentage that will say they will spend more and the decrease in the percentage who say they will spend less. the changes from 2011, in particular, are substantial from eight-14% say they will spend more and from 41-32% who say they will spend less. certainly one reason for these changes is improved family finances. most significantly, the percentage who said their financial situation had worsened declined from 37% in 2011 to 29% this year. these data are economic recovery indicators. thesurvey also suggests government shutdown and related budget controversies have tended to depress spending. over half of respondents indicated that " recent controversies over federal government spending and borrowing" had affected their holiday spending plans with nearly one/5 say ve

was watching from my crib, steve. well, a couple of thoughts on that. i mean, george h.w. bush ended up winning that election, didn't he? a harsh exchange. dan rather did have a reputation as being a that of a hit ball -- a pit bull in injuries. was the interview dell advised? -- ill advised? going armed with ammo into the interview, the seven minutes reference, so he expected it to be contentious. i think that those who would be impartiality, if that is possible, may have said that dan rather may have overstepped in again trying to take over -- trying to suck up all the oxygen in the room. if you ask a question, you have to allow your subject time to answer it, and we did not see that. we saw back and forth, talking over the stuff that became fashionable in the crossfire type programs, and it has become a true annoyance. this is a format that was pioneered by "nightline." i work for ted koppel as his producer and writer there. it was not to be that way. it was meant to allow an exchange, not babble. thes paul harvey would say, rest of this jury, the person behind that camera, advising
for the call. steve is joining us from west palm beach, florida. caller: good morning. good morning. i cannot the two terribly illustrative ash cannot be too terribly illustrative, i have been -- i cannot be too terribly illustrative. a lot ofen doing a studying of the united states economy going back to revolutionary times. there were a lot of periods where the economy was very volatile. you were so many booms and busts in the 19th century and so on. the last 25 years, from 1890 to from was very sehgal -- 1990 22 thousand seven, was very stable. 1990 to 2007 was very stable. if you never owned a house you might go from a time when you live alone in a single apartment to where you have to have a roommate back to where you can afford a single apartment and back and forth depending on what is.economy if people lose that resiliency they feel there is no opportunities to get ahead. that is basically what i want to say. journal.comnational -- but he railed along the way -- schedule got derailed on long the way. the senate would tackle a number of nominations. the employee nondiscrimination act and

on the table. my name is steve duncan. i'm going to follow up what mike said. in 1936 when germany was building its air power as fast as it could, there was a guy named churchill who on that house of commons was arguing for defense spending. said wee minister should not do that. he said there was no political mandate. churchill got up by himself and said we must remember that the protection of the british entry -- country does not require a mandate. it is the first order of duty. when i was in the government hired to 9/11, i made a visit to israel. i was meeting with their security leaders and i was impressed with the security. i was talking to one individual and he expressed the view that when i asked the question what is your strategic approach to fighting terrorism his answer was we know we cannot eliminate it but we hope we can reach a point where it is politically the number oft events. and wes fine before 9/11 were not thinking about weapons of mass destruction. aboutday we had to worry missiles on soviet warheads. now we're getting to the point where we have to worry about one individual
, steve that congress does not look at transportation as a single entity. it looks at it in a stove pipe fashion in that aviation, amtrak, highways, are dealt with separate bills in separate budgets. the traveler does not say i am exclusively a railroad traveler. a traveler on any day might use highways, aviation, railroads, and what would certainly help america's transportation to fundn today would be all of the modes to a multimodal, single transportation budget, which is not being done. what we are doing today is lobbyists from each of the modes are coming to capitol hill and fighting for their share of the pie. is relatively poor, does not have a political action committee, it does not fare as well as the other modes do on the hill. host: i want to come back to that in a moment, but let's look at amtrak by the numbers. 300ny given day it operates passenger trains daily. it has more than 21,000 miles of roots. it connects more than 500 destinations in 46 states, washington, d.c., and three canadian provinces. a top speed is 150 miles an hour. service began on may 1, 1971. the first tr
when i implored tom to bring to the house floor a resolution that steve of new york and i had introduced authorized the then president bush to enghage military action in operation desert storm to drive sa dam hugh sane out of kuwait. i was convinced that tom opposed military intervention and i know that a good many of his caucus were strongly opposed as well. >> it was an exercise of political courage and personal deesen si for tom to agree to bring the resolution up for an open debate and record a vote under those circumstances but he did. we had one of the most spirited but civil and informative debates in which i had been privileged to participate in all my 38 years in congress. we prevailed and the final outcome that day but i would have been proud of the house and proud of our speaker regardless because the house demonstrated to the world that it was truly a deliberative and democratic body. tom and i always struggled to find common ground between our two sides when there were issues upon which we could not agree, we could at least use common courtesy in the way we conduc

of senator durbin's and mine. steve bachus is a veteran of iraqi and lost his sight in battle in that country. 27 years old, i want you to think about him. too often, we have a problem in thinking about our veterans as victims. they are victors. he was an ardent rock climber. he was one of the victors that tammy and i see all the time. we rehab a lot at walter reed, where in that room where we are working all the time is 20 legs or arms missing. you cannot hold those guys back. i would say that this convention become victorsto instead of the ones. -- instead of victims. >> thank you, senator kirk. we appreciate your advocacy as well. >> i will point out the projectile that hurt steve was made in iran. no more passionate proponent nuclearg to stop iran's weapons, as well as their acts of terrorism. thank you for that as well. i know you both have busy schedules. with our thanks to the committee, we will excuse you both. let me call up our second panel. we have a large panel here. i asked the witnesses to limit their presentations to five minutes so that the committee can engage in a question a
tonight. guest: steve, great to be with you. on politico, a map you are keeping track county by county. it is almost as if you are a flyover across the state, a lot of red areas. the blue areas along the border in norfolk and northern virginia, fairfax and loudoun county. guest: right now in the poll, cuccinelli has the lead because a lot of the big, rural part of the state has reported. they are cuccinelli republican areas. we are still waiting on returns from a big swath of northern virginia which should favor mcauliffe. is a relatively close race, closer than some of the poll suggested it would be. he is roughly on par with president obama's numbers and a swing sweet counties -- counties which is one of the main suburban counties outside of the capitol in richmond. performed obama. cuccinelli will be the underdog race remains too close to call. >> about 80% of the vote now in and ken cuccinelli is ahead, 47% to 60 -- 46%. all of the polls are this past week showing terry mcauliffe ahead and the libertarian candidate getting anywhere 8%.ween 5%- that does not seem to be the numbers s
would say that i want to introduce you to a constituent of senator durbin's and mine. steve bachus is a veteran of iraq and lost his sight in battle in that country. 27 years old, i want you to think about him. too often, we have a problem in thinking about our veterans as victims. they are victors. he is an ardent rock climber. he was one of the victors that tammy and i see all the time. we rehab a lot at walter reed, where in that room where we are working all the time where 20 legs or arms missing. you cannot hold those guys back. i would say that this convention allows people to become victors instead of victims. >> thank you, senator kirk. we appreciate being with us and your advocacy as well. >> sorry, i will point out the projectile that hurt steve was made in iran. >> no more passionate proponent of trying to stop iran's nuclear weapons, as well as their acts of terrorism. thank you for that as well. i know you both have busy schedules. with our thanks to the committee, we will excuse you both. let me call up our second panel. we have a large panel here. so i ask the witnes
staff told them. and so it's not on them. it's on us. but it is something that we intend to fix. steve collinson. so our policy is iran cannot have nuclear weapons. and i'm leaving all options on the table to make sure that we meet that goal. point number two: the reason we've got such vigorous sanctions is because i and my administration put in place, when i came into office, the international structure to have the most effective sanctions ever. and so i think it's fair to say that i know a little bit about sanctions, since we've set them up, and made sure that we mobilize the entire international community so that there weren't a lot of loopholes and they really had bite. and the intention in setting up those sanctions always was to bring the iranians to the table so that we could resolve this issue peacefully, because that is my preference. that's my preference because any armed conflict has cost to it, but it's also my preference because the best way to assure that a country does not have nuclear weapons is that they are making a decision not to have nuclear weapons, and we're in a
with congress on a larger improvement. steve and virginia on our republican line. you are on the "washington journal." what do you think about these proposed fixes? going tohey are not work. they are trying to print money to cover up their corruption and incompetence. every man, woman, and child a $5,000 credit card that will be activated the minute you get a cold. then if somebody's catastrophic plan cannot be funded with that go to your congressional district and have more money loaded onto it. it will give every man, woman, and child in this country a health-care savings account. it would be their responsibility to look after their own needs. we would start treating people like adults instead of a bunch of children. democrats do not -- do not believe in treating people like children. tweets.ts of treat -- here is a slew of them. where does obama get the authority to change laws? says, how can the white house make changes to the law without an act of congress? how many have actually read the fix to the bill. will this only make things worse? president trying to provide cover for geo--- cov
. steve ine-mail from illinois -- the filibuster was a good option if used prudently and fairly. but it has been abused and overused. majority means one vote more than half. that is an e-mail from steve and illinois. a call from teresa in pennsylvania on our line for democrats. good morning. thank you for taking my call. i wanted to say that the republicans were well aware that if they continued the obstruction of the judges nor any obama appointee, then harry reid would have this option. so it is time for him to use it. theeeds to get some of president's appointees where they need to be. and it is just fair. they cannot be surprised by it. host: more headlines this morning. in the money section of "usa today" -- house committee and 's inspectorartment general are looking into a new york post report with national employment data and head of the 2012 election that may have been manipulated. richard in new jersey on our line for republicans. .aller: yeah, hi i am afraid that my republican constituents across the country never paid attention to the fact that our representatives in
in your book you talk about someone named, who we actually interviewed a couple years ago, in 2011. steve goldsmith. he used to be the mayor of indianapolis, the mayor of new york. let's watch a clip of that. you can put it in context. >> we had the sixth largest snow in new york city. lots of things went wrong. we learn from our mistakes. >> why did it go wrong? >> there are a lot of lessons, some are about snow. some are generalized. there is the very deliberate way you approach a job. let's say snowplows. you execute that the same way. for snow, the timing is extraordinary. the amount is extraordinary. the wind is extraordinary. fill in the blank. what we found this time was we have to have really up-to-date second by second management data. the reports were off a little bit. there were mistakes made by others. 1000 buses got stuck. you look at that, and you declare an emergency, but the people who met made a good-faith decision that turned out not to be right. the point of the story is it is easy to do monday morning quarterbacking here. i think we realized real-time management data c

they value on the web, thank you, steve jobs, right? games,ovide to buy something you find of value, so that is changing, but the second thing is let's not pretend to believe that 14-year-olds by newspapers. they did not, and they never will. they come to newspapers when they find a value equation. when they get a first job, or and they have a family, what they are offering, and public schools, and engaging with the community in a different way, and absolutely, i think that those things are coming together. tim, i want to go to your content strategy, because it is really interesting. you create content, and then you sell access, providing access to your audience. can you explain how you will make the decision between what you will cover and what other people should cover? how do you do that? >> it is a simplistic way. that we have a theory that most people care about a limited set of things. month, and i will underline something. as people become older, time becomes more valuable as well, so people start spending more time on things that matter more than they are willing to pay for thin

friends like larry silverman, steve williams, people i know, edith jones. just lots of judges i know, people who will call me and say, this is a good person. they know that i do not care which school they went to. it could be lsu or yale. i hire a small percentage from the ivy's. i hire quite a few more from the non-ivy's, simply because they are smart kids. i try to take them from the south. my part of the country. i try to prefer kids who come from modest circumstances, whose parents did not have all of the benefits or advantages. that is just a preference. i am not going to bring kids in who disagree on principles. i am not interested in arguing about that sort of stuff. i like kids who are not jerks.

to commend with. it's their ability on steve's issue. we're all related. >> we were having a discussion hat i purposely stayed out of. and at the own the day the symbolism of the pa len stein issue matters a lot. we're not going to be worried ever again. but having said that at the palestine issue, it gives the al stanees word world like it. there will be a whole list of others there strog do with egypt and so on and so forth. the palestine issue does matter. we need to understand how does it matter. and they're like oh, that we need to be -- we need be real hollow sticks. so president obama has all sorts of confusion issues, obamacare. so the question is will -- if he tibe make the deal with the iranians which satisfies him and satisfied secretary statement of kerry. it's a real consideration. and the same consideration exists 10 years. it's someone to make deal with the yourself. the other is i would get your ams so sort be leader. there was some imperfections and what the supreme leader was the phone call between obama. it goes to that level. it shows you how difficult it is to make. advoc
a few. i want to recognize former president and ceo of the financial services roundtable steve bartlett, who is here. when he was in the house, he was a leader in the effort to pass the ada, and we appreciate his presence. we received individual letters from 84 nonprofit disability and religious organizations like the red cross, easter seals, and special olympics. not to mention sign-on letters representing over 1000 friends groups. we have heard from individuals, some not so well-known, and some very well-known citizens, like colin powell, a chinese human right activist, loretta clairborne, and dr. jordan, the president emeritus of gallaudet university, who wrote, "nothing is more american than recognizing equal opportunity for all citizens." so i think at the end of the day, dr. jordan's simple statement is in substance why we must ratify the treaty. we have several petitions that have been organized by different groups with a total of over 67,000 signatures. and let us not forget what this treaty means to veterans. we have received letters of support from organizations, including the
